Probing a new volume regime in metabolomics with capillary electrophoresis-mass spectrometry
Can we solve new clinical problems using a miniaturised mass spectrometry platform?
Analysing volume-limited samples using current mass spectrometry technology continues to be challenging. This research proposal focuses on the development of a miniaturised mass spectrometry platform to measure metabolites highly sensitively in scarce sample material, such as stem cells and brain fluid from mice. Such a platform will also enable the study of new clinical problems.
